Never have two men worked so hard on one project (This may be a slight exaggeration), but I can honestly say Emir and myself have poured our hearts and days into this project, so ladies and gentlemen, I give you the conclusion to our series on creating professional guitar videos - editing.

 

 

For anyone who missed our previous installments in this series, check out the following:

Part 1 - System Rquirements and Setup

Part 2 - Creating a Backing Track

Part 3 - Video Capture

In this final part we will be taking our raw audio and video and synchronising the two to create a superior product eliminating room reverb, and other intrusive noises. Next we'll add various effects to our videos to really give them that glossy high quality look. Follow these instructions and you will end up with a marked improvement on your previous efforts.

As mentioned in the video, I'm using Windows Live Movie Maker which is worth a look as it's free, but our top tip for anyone thinking of getting a top of the line program is Sony Vegas. This does cost a little bit, but will provide you with all the tools required to serve you for many years.

Remember, the ultimate goal here is to enable you to come join us on the Live4Guitar marketplace. I can't stress this enough, our community is for you, a place where you can sell yourself and get the same treatment as Paul Gilbert and John Petrucci would. Come by our marketplace where we're currently offering an instant $50 payout the moment you upload a video. Read the following and join me on Live4Guitar.

How it Works

To become an instructor and sell your work, you have to follow these steps: Become a Member - You will need to create an account and log in to the marketplace. It's free to sign up.

Fill in the form on the bottom of this page - In order to see this form you will have to be logged in.

Tell us who you are - Send us your biography with some YouTube links of your work and the list of equipment you will be using in order to record your lessons (Video & Audio).

Wait for approval - When your request is approved, you will be notified via email.

Start selling - At this point you are an instructor and can upload your content. Your account will change into an instructor's account with a few additional options.

Read our help pages and watch the "Authoring Tutorial" - This is an overview of some important information about uploading lessons, copyright, selling and general use of the website.

Each lesson should contain:

Main video covering the entire lesson videos at slow speed covering parts of the lesson with different camera angles if desired

Backing tracks at various speeds

PDF files with chords and tabs

Powertab or Guitar Pro files

Any spoken/written instructions as necessary

Lessons covering popular songs by other artist are normally subject to copyrights. These are in most cases covered by our Music Licence so you can feel free to teach covers.

Getting Paid

When your lessons are live, you will be accumulating earnings from sales which can be paid out in a few ways:

When you upload your lesson, our team will set the price (subject to approval)

The instructor earns 50% of the agreed lesson price per sale for exclusive, or 25% for non exclusive lessons

When your earnings reach $50 or higher you can request a payout to your PayPal account.

Payments are processed at the end of each calendar month and are paid out on the 15th of the following month. For earnings of more than $500, you can request a payout by cheque or wire transfer. Please note that fees may be applied to this method of payment.
